Sam Jarman on Superpeer
Senior Software Developer, Tech Lead, Blogger, Career Mentor
Hi there! I’m Sam, a generalist software developer, with a current specialty in TypeScript/JavasScript development. I enjoy all types of coding and consider myself a generalist for this reason. I’ve had professional experience in iOS (Swift, Obj-C) and Ruby (on and off Rails). I also enjoy reasoning about and using cloud services, and have commercial and personal experience with AWS and Azure. I enjoy researching new services to integrate to make better products for users. But for me tech isn't just programming, and I love that. I also love the other bits. I love marketing and can talk about it all day. I enjoy writing blog posts for customers, demoing software in sales or onboarding, making sure customers will have their needs met, and writing solid documentation for technical customers. I just love digital products. I like talking about them, I like building them, I like helping others to build them better (career development/mentorship), I like selling them, I like using them. In 2018, I was honoured to be named New Zealand’s Young IT Professional of the Year. I was delighted to receive this award and have my efforts appreciated. This industry is awesome, but won't get better by accident, so I’m proud to play my part. Outside of tech, I enjoy performing and watching improv comedy, American-style BBQ, walks in nature and patting dogs.
